RE: Charleston WV Toll Roads

I will be coming from Columbus Oh, entering Charleston area via US-35 to I-64, I plan on getting on I-77 / I64 heading south after crossing the river, then continuing onto 60 (Hwy 60?, I-60?) at Exit 96 towards Belle, and continue on towards Lewisburg, WV. First, I much prefer secondary roads to the interstates. Traveling east from KY to VA, I took the US 60 route above in our 26 ft Class C. We wanted to see the New River Gorge bridge. Pros, scenic route Kanawha Falls, Cathedral Falls, and New River Gorge Bridge. Cons, curves and hills. In 4 seasons and 30K miles of driving the Class C, that was the most tiring drive I have had. I would drive in a 30-35 MPH crosswind in South Dakota again over that drive. If traveling in that area in the future, I will pay the tolls and make better time and stay on I-64.

RE: A couple of distilleries in early April

Check out Taylorsville Lake State Park. Less than a hour to Frankfort or Bardstown.

Best route to Helen Ga from Kentucky

Planning a trip to Helen Ga in the summer in a Class C towing a Jeep Wrangler. I have driven the motor home, without the Jeep, to Blue Ridge GA by US 74 from I75 at Cleveland TN to Ducktown TN and the south to US 76. It looks like the two options from the north is either to Blairsville GA and US 19 to GA 348 (Richard Russell Scenic Hwy) or Hiawassee GA and GA 75/17 (Unicoi Turnpike) south. Is one way better than the other? Anyone have any experience driving TN 68 from Sweetwater to Ducktown.

RE: Campground suggestions near Fort Knox Ky

Check out the Kentucky Bourbon Trail while you are there. You will be close to Jim Beam distillery in Clermont and the distilleries in Bardstown and Louisville. The stops on the trail in Louisville are all down town, so parking for an RV might be hard to find. Louisville Slugger Museum and the Ali are also in Louisville.

RE: Quiet side of the Smokies

The quiet side of the Smokies to me are Maggie Valley and Cataloochee on the North Carolina side and Townsend on the Tennessee side. Less developed and crowded than Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge. Several campgrounds in both areas. Have never stayed at any so I can not recommend any.

RE: South Dakota, July 2020

2x Fort Welikit in Custer. Stayed there the first of October with the daughter and granddaughters. The girls loved the fort and the deer and turkeys wandering the campground. Staff and facilities were great. I would stop at Devils Tower on the way to SD. If you have kids, 2 things I would recommend are the Mammoth Dig in Hot Springs and the fish hatchery in Spearfish. The Spearfish City campground is next to the fish hatchery and is a nice campground we have stayed at before. Wall Drug is a couple hour stop. If you not hiking, the Badlands is a half day visit. We enjoyed the trip so much we want to go back in the summer with better weather.

RE: Cairo IL bridges

Charles, we will be heading west. The route you gave was the one I was considering. A stop for a photo with Superman in Metropolis is planned. Thanks to everyone for their replies.

Cairo IL bridges

Anyone been across the US 60 & 62 bridges at Cairo IL? On Google maps, they look really narrow, especially the Mississippi River bridge. Is the alternate route on I 57 and then back to I 24 and Paducah that much longer? Lost a mirror on a narrow bridge and a little gun shy now.

RE: Decisions

We have a Winnebago Minnie Winnie 25B. 26 ft with no slide. This is our 4th year and no problems. Like that it has a sofa and a dinette. Some people do not like the corner bed, but we have learned how to deal with it. Lot of exterior storage.

Black Hills in October

Grand daughter wants to see the "Presidents on the Mountains" as she calls Mt Rushmore. Due to various things, this trip will be the first weekend of October. The wife and I will head out early and pick the other 4 up at Rapid City. We will spend 4 days in the Black Hills and then all of us will head home to Kentucky with a stop in St Louis. I am finding some of the campgrounds close October 1. Custer State park, Spearfish City, and Custer Gulch will be open. Any recommendation for this time of the year? The girls need W/E, but we don't necessarily need FHU. Looking for base camp to explore from Hot Springs to Devils Tower. Would the fall colors be starting?
